Do you get global upgrade vouchers and have an upcoming international trip? If so, the quote possibly worth it.

Definitely worth it due to GPUs. You can always sell them.

Unfortunately GPUs have gone away. It’s now a point system for upgrades. OP I think it depends how much you value pre-boarding as 1Ks now preboard with or right after Global Services.

And then lose your status for it. Lol worth it.

Don't forget the free snacks and drink.. that's 20 bucks on every flight!
